When we reviewed the Modor NF-1 Digital synth, one of the unique features was the formant vowel filter - for making human vowel articulations. At Superbooth this year we saw a prototype of the Eurorack Modor Formant Filter.
Today Modor tell us that the manufacture is now complete and you can now order the unit.
Price is €299 - and will be available from most large Eurorack dealers.
The center big FORMANT control does the morphing between the three vowels, the AMOUNT control sets the amount of CV modulation for this control.
The three leds above the buttons show which of the three vowels is selected for editing. That depends on the position of the FORMANT control.
The VOWEL button chooses which of the 10 factory presets go into the active vowel. SHIFT+VOWEL saves all the actual settings to be reloaded when the modular system is powered off and on.
The 1-2-3-4 controls select the 4 frequency bands of the active vowel. SHIFT+1-2-3 sets the presence of the first three frequencies, SHIFT+4 sets the volume of the active vowel.
